What's your thoughts on drafting Vick in the first round??

Postby aussieboy » Wed Mar 17, 2004 7:19 pm

A lot of people are prepared to take him at the end of the first round in 12 team leagues. Im interested to hear what people think of this. Personally i think its a mistake passing up on a top RB or WR to get a QB (say if u took Vick with 1.12 u could take a RB or WR with your 2.01 pick, but then its an awfull long wait for ur next pick).

Vick when healthy is amazing, but would u take the risk with him that early?

To take him in the first round of a 12 man draft is wrong, its that simple.

Agreed. Even as a Hokie I can't understand the value that everyone puts on Vick when it comes to fantasy football. Don't get me wrong, I think he's the most exciting player in the league - I just don't think that translates into points. I suppose in a league that scored higher for rushing TDs I would move him up a bit but even in those leagues I would never think of drafting him before the 4th or 5th round. He has yet to complete a season (as the starter) in the NFL or college.

No way do you take ANY QB in the first round of a 12 team draft.....much less Vick, who is the 3rd best QB IMO

The only non-RB I would consider taking in the first round is Randy Moss, and I would even be hesistant to do that. QB is such a deep position, you can get good value in the fifth or sixth round. However, if Culpepper, Manning, or Vick are available in the third or fourth, I would consider drafting them there if the l33t (hoo) WRs were off the board.

...So simply put - no, I wouldn't draft Vick in the first round.

I wouldn't even think of drafting Vick before round 4.. When hes #4 at his position, no reason to take a chance in round 1
